Filing your personal taxes can be easier than it used to be. Unfortunately, what you could claim last year may not be the same this year. I have compiled a list of the common personal tax laws that have changed since last tax season on my website. I have also provided several tips that can help you get the biggest return possible without manipulating your tax forms. You can learn how to get the biggest return while following the IRS guidelines so you do not have to worry about tax audits or getting a penalty letter a few years after getting your check.
If one of your drains is clogged, and you don't have any chemical drain cleaner on hand and are not able to go to the store to get anymore, here are a few easy ways you can unclog your drain using items you probably have around your home.
Salt & Hot Water
All that you need for this trick is some salt and hot water. Pour about half a cup of salt down your clogged drain. Then, follow-up by pouring a pot full of bowing water down your drain. Next, turn the tap to hot, and flush the drain until the clog is clear. You may need to repeat the salt and boiling water step again if the drain doesn't clear up after fifteen minutes or so.
Take a small personal-sized container of plain yogurt and pour it down the drain. Do not use the drain for several hours; just let the yogurt work its way down your drain. The cultures in the yogurt over time should break up the clog inside of your sink. After several hours have passed, flush your drain with some hot water and see if the clog has cleared.
Leg Hair Remover
If you think that a clump of hair is clogging up your drain, you can use some leg hair remover to clear your drain. Take a container of leg hair remover and pour it down your drain. Let it sit in your drain for at least an hour; this will give it some time to dissolve the hair that is clogging your drain.
After an hour or so has passed, pour a pot of hot water down your drain, then wait again. This will push the hair remover further down your drain and will allow it to continue to break down the hair.
After another hour or so has passed, run the hot tap and see if the drain has become unclogged.
Baking Soda & Apple Cider Vinegar
If your drain is not completely clogged, but is draining slower than it should, pour equal amounts of baking soda and apple cider vinegar down your drain. These two ingredients will interact with one another and create a bunch of foam (so you may want to cover the drain with a cup to keep the foam concentrated and working inside of the drain).
The foam should break down and eat away at whatever is clogging your drain. When the foam subsides, flush your drain with hot water from the tap.
If you don't have any chemical drain cleaner on hand and you don't have any DIY methods, you may need to call plumbing services. If you do have some household products, try your hand at one of the drain cleaning methods above and see if you can clear away that clog!Share
